Richard Dawkins Suggests Eating Human Flesh to Overcome Cannibalism ‘Taboo’

Thomas Williams – Briebart Sept 13, 2019

Professional atheist Richard Dawkins continues to push the envelope against a God-deluded world, proposing that cultivating and eating human “meat” might help society overcome its “taboo” against cannibalism.

Commenting on an article from the UK’s Independent newspaper, which touts the benefits of lab-grown “clean meat,” Dawkins tweeted earlier this month that perhaps something similar could be done with human flesh, which would assist western culture in shedding yet another irrational remnant of its Judeo-Christian roots.

Dawkins said that eating lab-grown human meat would provide an “interesting test case for consequentialist morality versus ‘yuck reaction’ absolutism,” which keeps people from doing things just because they seem morally repugnant.

The Independent article cites Josh Tetrick, the CEO of clean meat manufacturer JUST, who claims that “clean meat”—made from stem cells harvested from living livestock and then grown in a lab—could be on restaurant menus by the end of the year.

Familiar meat products such as chicken nuggets, sausage and even foie gras will be manufactured using the process and could be served in restaurants in the US and Asia “before the end of 2018,” Tetrick said.

Richard Dawkins suggests taking the procedure a step further and producing human “meat,” which presumably would also come from stem cells.

As an absolute materialist who denies the existence of anything that cannot be measured by science, Dawkins is a moral pragmatist. There is no soul or afterlife in the Dawkins world, so morality is defined by the here and now and the value of human actions is judged solely by their effects.

Whether Dawkins’s Brave New World — where every taboo is bulldozed and nothing is forbidden — would make people happier, better, or more fulfilled, is far from self-evident.

For now, dinner guests in the Dawkins home would be well advised to choose a seat near the door, in case their host decides to change up the menu.

  1. Anyone who promotes eating human meat has lost their marbles, Dawkins suggestion is not a firm promotion of cannibalism but overcoming taboos. This article is spot on about how these intellectuals are all brains and no heart, and lack emotional intelligence on what is right and wrong. I know all about these “smart” people. Dawkins is a genius when it comes to describing memetics but if he promote fake meat or eating human flesh then he’s lost it and is cra cra.

    PhD’s can be the dumbest people and I know because all the Catholic PhD’s in my immediate family believe the official narrative of 911 and think it is crazy conspiracy theory that the WTC complex was a controlled demolition. They ain’t going to risk their doctorate title with any non mainstream narrative “kook talk” as they say to me. Take my word for it, trying to talk sense to these eggheads is a giant waste of time.

    Global Warming alarmists are also promoting cannibalism, in Los Angeles a fake promo of a cannibal restaurant where Hollywood dines:

    ” Specializing in the preparation of human meat, Cannibal Club brings the cutting edge of experimental cuisine to the refined palates of L.A.’s cultural elite. ”

    Humans are a malformed specie who joke about eating humans. The specie is sick and mentally ill about so many things, like the insane push for Climate Change legislation when we are in an ice age, and at the end of an interglacial. If these crazies who think the trace life gas of CO2 must be stopped and shutter the coal fired electrical plants they might just be forced into cannibalism during the winter months in an economic collapse.

  2. So if he or it has a wife homo or straight does he mean we can consume them? Or how about we try eating his children to see how he feels about consuming human flesh then.

  3. this square head looks only within his short parameter and wants people to board in his wrecked ship. has he not learnt from the cow mad disease where those square heads thinking like him managed to cannibalise the cows and what was the result ? Madness!.
    for him our faith heads are very short sighted to join his superior intellect who knows it all.
    what a deception ?

  4. Yupp.. Remind me of the Joke, about a cannibal capturing a young white woman, & his son asking, are we going to eat her ?? Cannibal answer; No son, we are going to take her home & eat your mother …

  5. These comments by Dawkins,if true,demonstrate he has lost the plot…..These academics are so far removed from the real world they can cause real harm by being removed from consequences….Marx the greasy creep…..HIS theories resulted in Pol Pot killing so many people……You get the picture….So….as long as Dawkins is not affected it’s all hunky dory…..yeah right.

  6. Maybe somebody should just murder Dawkins. I’m sure Dawkins wouldn’t mind being part of a real-time abolishment of “taboos”. Right, “Dr.”?

  7. Let’s cut to the chase. Dawkins is a satanist living by satanic tenets, one of them being subjective morality i.e. do whatever you think is right for you. He believes that internal knowledge of what is right and wrong was not bestowed upon him by an Almighty Creator so he gets to decide from within his own mind what is right and wrong. And from the perspective of his more-than-pathetic mind there is absolutely nothing wrong with consuming human flesh! And this man is actually regarded as a thinker by some! What a sad refection on them. Tragically the world is in a mess precisely because of people who operate their lives according to satanic beliefs just like Dawkins. Whoever expects the world to be an harmonious, orderly place it should be without knowing this is seriously information-deficient. Or if they do know, are seriously naïve. Whoever cannot see that Dawkins and his ilk are a major part of the problem and not the solution are themselves part of the problem!

  8. Wheres the report about the jailing of a woman in Britain for singing songs about Jews….
    So its beginning….USSR MK2 coming right up.

  9. I imagine the “good” Dr. conveys an absolute “YUCK” when confronted with so-called “holocaust denial.” Let’s see him rail against a modern icon allegedly perpetrated against the very people who helped erect the invisible taboos he rails against.

  10. Such views fit well in utilitarianism. The result is the only thing that matters, through what means it is achieved is inconsequential. Only a fool would believe in this… Very dangerous belief indeed, if the only way for human-race as opposed to humanity, is to kill 90% of people, then so be it!
